For example, I found a great maragarita cupcake recipe I want to try. There is tequila in the batter, but after baking you also brush some on top of the cupcake.

I have been cooking for 20 years. Trace amounts do stay in the food but not enough to be concerned about.3

The alcohol in the tequila that's in the batter will be cooked out. The tequila brushed on top of the cupcake will still have alcohol in it, but a little bit isn't gonna kill anyone lol. As long as you're not dousing the cupcake with a full shot you (and any kids or pregnant women) will be fine!
(those cupcakes sound amazing btw)2
